Subject: painful but bonehead question

I am a newbie trying to write Perl scripts in Linux environment:

question is, why is Perl evaluating my " (quotes) as ? (question marks)
? ,
i.e. like in a simple string " blah blah blah"

do I have to be in certain shell if using a Linux-based environment. It
works fine on my NT box with basic command line

perl -w <Xcript file>.

yours truly,

BoneHead Johnson
